Tottenham have granted out of favour midfielder Dele Alli permission to seek a move away from the club, 90min understands.

The 25-year-old has failed to recapture the form that saw him hailed as one of the world's best young players in his first few seasons at Spurs.

With his career stalling and opportunities at Tottenham limited, Dele is at a vital crossroads and it's likely he now needs to leave north London in order to play regular first team football.

90min has been told that Spurs have granted him permission to seek a move away before the January transfer deadline, with Everton, who confirmed the appointment of Frank Lampard as their new manager at lunchtime on Monday, among several sides interested in Dele.

Newcastle have also been linked with a loan move for Dele, with the Magpies looking to strengthen their squad in attempt to stave off relegation.

PSG, managed by former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, have also been linked with a move in the past, but it's unlikely that Dele will link up with the Argentine – who returned to Parc des Princes in December 2020.

Dele has scored just one Premier League goal since the start of the 2020/21 and has dropped way down the pecking order in north London following Antonio Conte's appointment as head coach.
